One of our favorite cocktails, the Widow's Touch is back!

The Widow's Touch

1 oz Laird's Apple Brandy
1 oz B&B
1/2 oz St. Germaine Elderflower Liquor
Dash of Angostura Bitters

We love this cocktail. A great cocktail should always be bigger than the sum of it's parts. What this means for a cocktail is that the ingredients blend together to create a flavor that is wholly new, without any indication of the component flavors. It's one thing to do this with juices and syrups, but to simply blend liquors by themselves into a wonderful new flavor is the height of the art. The Widow's Touch is a great example of this. Come try it and see for yourself.

P.S. For all you cocktail vets out there here's a little secret: next time you're in Alfa ask EB to make the Irish Whiskey Dry Manhattan that he came up with on Monday. It's pretty special.
